The video on the web-site was very helpful in showing how to take it apart. First we remove the power plug from the wall outlet. Then we used flat scrapper to push the top two hidden clips to release the Dryer's top. We used the nut driver to unscrew the two screws that held the front panel. We carefully remove the wires that were connected to switch sensor for the door, and the lights. Next step was to unscrew couple more screws that held the front piece from the main fan housing. At the bottom locate the tensioner of the belt. Release it. Remove the dryer drum with the belt. We took the opportunity to clean off the lint that was all over on the bottom of the dryer. We then could reach the bottom left back of the dryer to unscrew the screws that held the heater unit. Before that we unscrew and release the wires for the Thermal fuse and the limit thermostat which are all located on the heating unit. Then we replace with new pieces. Upon removal of the heating unit we noticed the broken heating element. Next was to place the drum back in. We made sure that the drum lined up with the rear support piece then the front. We rotated the drum just to make sure that it was sitting correctly. Then we screwed the front housing unit. Then we put the front panel back on the hooks at the bottom. That help to line up the front panel with the main chasis. We connected all the connectors to the right terminals. Last was to set the top down on to the chasis. We checked that the duct in the rear is not obstucted. Lastly was plugging in the power cord and testing the dryer. It is working again. Thanks to Part Select's video and parts. Total time was just over half an hour.

A friend did the repair for me. Very simple. Saved me a lot of money by getting the parts and fixing the problem. Thanks!
I removed bottom front panel. The heating element is on the lower back wall of dryer. I removed the old element and the two thermostats that are attached to it. I but the thermostats on the new element and screwed it back in place.
I spent most of an afternoon taking the entire dryer apart before realizing that all I needed to do was take off the lower front cover by removing two screws and then the plastic exhaust housing to access the heating element. Removing two screws allowed me to remove the element. I then switched the thermal fuses and wires from the existing element to the new one and slipped it back in place from the front , replaced the screws and things were ready to go. All the time I spent taking the dryer apart however were not wasted as it allowed me to clean everything up, straighten out the seals at the ends of the dryer tub and find a bit of loose change.
Unplugged MachineRemoved bottom panel on front of dryer. Reached all the way to the back of machine, and removed 2 screws. Pulled element down, and out. Wires were long enough to pull element back out the front of the machine. Removed the sensors that were on it, and installed them on the new element. Installed the new element where the old one went. Installed bottom paneltoo easy
Take front lower cover off with two screws at bottom.Remove heating element from lower left side rear. Leave wires on until element is removed.Replace element and thermostat and then switch the wires from old parts to new parts one at a time so they don't get crossed.Clean any lint from inside dryer at this time.Install new parts back to dryer.Replace front cover and your done.
I removed the front panel. Removed the two screws on the element. Slide the element down then it pulled free. I left the wiring connected to the element when I pulled it out. I verified the part number on the element then ordered the new one. It was here in two days. Connected the wiring to the new element and put it back. Two screws and your done. Plugged in the dryer and ran it to be sure it worked. Then put the front panel back on.
Removed the 2 screws on the front bottom panel. Next I removed the 2 screws that held the element in place. Removed element from dryer with wires still attatched so I could easily make sure I reconnected wires the same way. Slid element back into place and replaced the 2 screws. Still had no heat so I went to the next possible problem. Replaced the 2 thermostats. One on the element and one on the front of the blower. Still no heat. I'm a rookie repair man (never done this before) and didn't know what the fuse looked like. Finally found the fuse. It is attatched to the element with 2 screws. Replaced it as well and guess what? I had heat! Moral of my repair experience. Start with the little things. I went backwards.
Removed lower panel 2 screws, removed blower vent housing 3 screws,reached in to lower left back wall and removed 2 screws and removed the heating element,wires were long enough to reach the front. Replaced thermostat and element and re installed.The vent was loaded with lint .The dryer works like new. Really easy
Very easy repair unplugged drier removed lower panel on front of drier and with a 1/4 socket set with 6 inch extension(long reach to back of drier) removed tw0 mounting screws in element. The wires on element wer longenough that i removed element with wire connected and the simply placed new elemant beside and transfered wires to new element. Once wires were transfered slide new element into place and reinstalled 2 mounting screws. Plugged drier in and tested it then replaced front cover once was sure was working properly. Very simple job and for under $50 drier works good as new again.

Hi there. . . . The heat element in my dryer had went bad so I went online to fine a part for my dryer that's when I came across partselect I order the part from the them. . . . At a very good price. . . In 2 to 3 days the part were here. . . It 15 to 30 min I had put the heat element in my dryer. Thank you partselect you save alot of money for me. . . . . . . . I were getthing ready to buy a new dryer. That would have cost me $299. 00 Or $300. 00. I think I can get 5 maybe 10 more years out of my dryer now. R watkins
Unplug the unit. Tip the machine to the rear, and put a block under the front to gain access the bottom of the front panel. the Remove the 2 screws on the lower front panel, and remove the panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the door assembly. This assembly has clips that hold it on top, so pull out on the bottom, and pull down. Be sure to mark the wires on the door switch. Remove plastic blower box assembly. This is fastened from inside the drum with 3 phillips screws. The heating element and thermal fuse are located in the left rear corner of the machine. Remove 2 screws holding assembly, and pull it out to the front of the machine...the wires are long enough to allow this. The thermal fuse is screwed right to the element. Just lay the elements side by side, and transfer the wires from 1 to the other. Put everything back together in reverse order. My dryer now works like new. This is an easy job for an average handyman.
Unplug dryer. Remove front lower panel, remove black air duct, remove heater element on back wall of dryer, pull wire spade connections off element, transfer wires and plugs onto new element, install new fuse, install heating element into dryer, replace duct and outer cover. Pretty easy with a socket driver.
